Hi Bentley. You are a super good-looking pet. I’m partial to labs—they make the best friends. You are really lucky to have someone write you so many messages. It takes time for us parents—Have fund with all those toys and treats and Happy New Year!! You are so special.

Rich, I am sorry for the loss of your sweet angel Bentley. Such a handsome boy who is now able to run fast and free as his legs are fully restored and he has no pain or discomfort. I hope Bentley meets up with my Murphy so they can run and play together in the warm sunshine.

Rich, I too believe in spirit. I know our furry friends are just here with us. Bentley must love you very much; he gave you a sign that he's just around. I’m sorry for your loss. Know that you are not alone. I, too, have lost a beloved pet; everyone in this website have. We know you’re hurting, and we’re here for you. We feel the pain that you feel; we’ve suffered the loneliness that you suffer, at not having our beloved pet by our side anymore. But we all feel the same relief---that where our beloved pets are now, they’re safe, and happy, and content, whatever afflicted them in this life is gone. And we all share the same hope---one day, we will be together again with our beloved ones. My baby, a female Beagle named River, left for Rainbow Bridge on March 21, 2017; you can see River here---

Rich, I'm sorry for the loss of your beloved Bentley. I lost my Ginger to lymphoma she was only 6, I miss her everyday. We need to take comfort knowing both Bentley and Ginger are happy, healthy and cancer free, running and playing, enjoying the warmth and the sunshine, waiting for the day when we will all be together again. I do hope that Bentley and Ginger have become fast friends. I'm enclosing an Angel to watch over our babies.

Our pet children teach us unconditional love because that’s all they know how to do. Bentley was a special dog, and I’m glad he got to spend his life with you. You gave him a good home and great life here on earth, and someday we will all be together again with our beloved pets.

Dear Rich, I am so sorry the loss of your precious and beloved best friend. I lost my beautiful little chocolate lab(my baby) in September. The pain is immense and those do not understand that, have truly missed out on something so special in this life. I cannot take away the pain, sorrow, and heartache that you feel. I will simply keep you in my prayers.

Dear Rich, The love between an owner and a dog can only be described by one word, unconditional. Looking at the amazing pictures you posted, it’s so obvious you and Bentley had such a wonderful mutual love and friendship. Just remember it’s never really “Goodbye”, just “Until we’re together again”. You have my sincerest condolences. Alicia

Dear Rich, I understand this is a sad time for you I too know the heartbreak of losing a beloved friend and constant companion having lost my beloved Bob Barker on August 28, I understand how much you miss Bentley! Just remember that it is never really “Goodbye”, just “Until we’re together again”! And I pray that this thought will give your heart comfort and peace in the days to come when you think of your sweet Bentley…. Now Bentley waits for you to sleep at night and dream of him. His love continues to cross the Rainbow bridge and come to you all the time. My pups and I are sending you very – very special loving thoughts, prayers, positive energy, and petitioning the Universe to ease your heart pain and give you peace in the knowledge that you will see your little one again one day and that for now your sweet Bentley is but a dream away… You can visit Bob Barker at:

Even though he looks like a big dog, I’m sure he’s up there with my tiny baby girl, Ozzy, and cuddling with her. She passed away this past Tuesday and while I miss her dearly, I wholeheartedly believe that they are both in a much better place and that we will be with them again.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Bentley. Please find comfort in knowing that Bentley is now at Rainbows Bridge and making lots of friends. Saying goodbye is never easy. I also lost my precious cat Spooky July 30th 2001 after 16 wonderful years with her. On January 11, 2013, I lost my faithful friend Hannah who was a beautiful blue tick hound dog. On August 2, 2013 another one of my beautiful cats, Sammi, a black and white tabby, went to Rainbows Bridge. April 9, 2014, Maci, my English Bulldog passed over to Rainbows Bridge. Maci and Hannah were best friends. On March 20, 2017 my sweet little calico Gabbi crossed over Rainbow's Bridge. I adopted her about a month after Spooky passed away and Gabbi also lived to be almost 16 years old. I am sure that Bentley and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

Bentley I am sorry for your loss. Rich loves you and misses you very much. My Perseus went to Rainbow Bridge when he was 14. There are no more aches or pains. No rain only sunshine. Running and playing all day with the other furbabies. One day we will join them for all eternity at Rainbow Bridge.

I am so sorry for your loss of Bentley. My heart goes out to you as I know you are struggling so with the loss of your precious baby. Your world has lost a very special baby, family member and friend, but the heavens have welcomed home a very special soul. Earth’s loss is heaven’s gain. I know you had a special relationship with Bentley that will always be a part of you. I pray that my sweet little girl, Bailey, found Bentley and they have become friends. May the precious love you shared with Bentley continue to warm your heart and I hope you find peace and comfort knowing that your love will bind you together forever. Peace and blessings to you. My precious Bailey left our world December 5th, 2013 and we miss her so. Please visit my Bailey at

Dear Rich, I am so sorry to know about your dear Bentley. Please know that here at this site there is a lot support and understanding of your loss. Thoughts of strength to you in your days to follow. To Bentley, I am sorry you had to leave your Daddy's side but I know you are healthy and whole again. Running around and swimming in all the pools of water that are at the bridge. Know that you are missed very much and you will never be forgotten. Your daddy set up a very nice memorial for you and added some really nice pictures of you. You are such a handsome boy and you sure look like you very well taken care of and very much loved.

Dear Bentley, you are truly handsome. Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the hearts of your family who miss you so much, and they will send their love right back to you on angels' wings. Dear Rich, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed Home a very special soul. Bentley is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as Tashi, Katy and BG are watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May his sweet presence continually nuzzle your heart until then, and may you find comfort in knowing that the silver thread of love that binds you heart to heart with Bentley will never be broken. Many blessings and much peace, Clare and Martha...Please visit our Tashi at

For sweet Bentley, I know that during your lifetime you gave Rich much joy. Now I am wishing for you lots and lots of happiness playing in the meadows beyond the Rainbow Bridge. From looking at your photos and at the beautiful residency that Rich created just for you it is obvious that you came from a warm and loving home. Bentley I have a wonderful playmate for you. His name is Pedro and he is adorable just like you. I know you two will be very good friends. For Rich, I just visited your Bentley's Rainbows Bridge residency and wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious furangel. I am sure if asked, Bentley would have said that every day spent with you was a blessing. Having lost my little dog Pedro I can understand how you must be feeling and how much you must miss Bentley. Wishing you all the very best always, Rosalind (Pedro's Mom).

Rich: Bentley's passion for water and a zest for life will always be remembered so tenderly. May those moments in time bring a gentle tear to your eye and a smile to your lips. In your time of need, I wish you strength and solace throughout this difficult period and to know you will always be loved from beyond for an eternity. I've left a swimming pool in loving memory for your best friend.
